In April of 2013, a group of Seattle concert photographers got together for a “Rocktographer” event. Each photographer printed their favorite concert photo for display at the Triple Door Theater in Seattle, WA. Throughout the month, guests of the Triple Door voted for their favorite image. At the end of the month Christopher Nelson received the most votes and was deservedly awarded the top prize of “Seattle Rocktographer of the Year.” The feedback for this event was overwhelmingly positive with a very diverse group of prominent people in the Seattle music industry as well as music/photography fans supporting the event.

We'd like to grow as a community for working concert photographers to share, learn, grow, and be inspired.

To start 2013, we are asking working concert photographers to share their favorite live music photo of 2013 to be displayed on This invitation is open to all photographers that were credentialed to cover at least 5 concerts during the year 2013. Please email your favorite concert photo of 2013 to The image must be sized to 800 pixels on the longest side. Include the name of the artist, date, venue and city/state. You are welcome to include a watermark on the image, but it must be placed in either the bottom left or bottom right hand corner of the image and no larger than 200 pixels wide and 100 pixels high.

Images will initially be displayed in the gallery in order they are received. After one month, they will be placed in order of the number of Facebook “likes” they have received so once the gallery is up, be sure to share the page with your friends and family.

The gallery is being coordinated by Mat Hayward and David Conger.
